Dr. Mohammed Al Kuwaiti, Chairman of the UAE Cybersecurity Council, noted at the time that the move would offer the government with "the highest level of flexibility," boosting its ability to "face increasing digital challenges."
He went on to add: "As the UAE looks forward to its centenary in 2071, we have the opportunity to pause and consider how the world can evolve, and how we can use technology to improve outcomes for humanity."
